Kevin McCarthy Scum Again

It's your Sunday show rundown!

Last week GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was happy as he could be on the Sunday shows, over the statistical and historical possibility he'll be Senate majority leader once more.

This week it's GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, sporting a red face we can only assume he got from a penis charging station -- allegedly! -- on "Fox News Sunday."

Matt Gaetz Succeeds In Getting Defense Sec To Yell At Him, Great Job Matt Gaetz!

He's just plain evil, is the problem.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida), that useless bag of hair and forehead who should've gone to prison for sex trafficking by now, had a fine time grandstanding for rightwing media during a House Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday. As Ukraine called for investigations of Russian war crimes in the murders of hundreds of civilians in Bucha, Gaetz bravely interrogated US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin about the extremely important issue of whether the Pentagon is even capable of having good manly wars anymore since it's drowning in "wokeness."

Gatz eventually managed to provoke Austin into a shouting match, so it was clearly a win for the vacuous troll and his important agenda of being a complete asshole.

Here's video of Gaetz being a smarmy turd, and Austin growing more and more exasperated at his bullshit.

Right Wing Extremism

Your Weekly Dose Of GOP Non-Answers And BS, Courtesy Of The Sunday Shows!

We watch so you don't have to.

The Republican Party has long given up on governance or the appearance of even trying. It's so plain that even when they publicly confess that truth, it's met with a shrug rather than any pushback.

Translation: We have no agenda other than obstructing like it's 2008!

It's nevertheless infuriating when the GOP tries to cover its bullshit with a thin veneer of legitimacy.

Roy Blunt on ABC's 'This Week'

A great example of this is GOP Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, who got his own dedicated Wonkette post about this earlier today. Blunt was asked about where he stood on the upcoming vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. Blunt decided to pretend he just really wanted to be a part of this historic moment, but just couldn't vote for this particular person:

BLUNT: Really, there are two criteria, I said immediately. One is, is the person qualified for the job? And two is, what's her judicial philosophy?

She's certainly qualified. [...] But the judicial philosophy seems to be not the philosophy of looking at what the law says and the Constitution says and applying that, but going through some method that allows you to try to look at the Constitution as a more flexible document, and even the law. And there are cases that show that that’s her view. [...] And I won't be supporting her but I'll be joining others in understanding the importance of this moment.

If only the very qualified Judge Jackson had answered that question about her judicial philosophy. Oh wait. We guess Blunt just missed it during the confirmation hearings or when it was reported by The Wall Street Journal or Slate or The New York Times or Des Moines Register. I'm sure once Sen. Blunt's staff does a quick Google search, he'll get right on confirming Judge Jackson.

Right? Right?

Sen. Kevin Cramer Thinks Trump Asking Putin For Dirt On Bidens Is Magnificent Joke

In Russia, joke plays you!

Donald Trump somehow hasn't yet literally put to the test his theory that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose any supporters, and we suppose if Republicans are fine with nearly a million people dead of COVID, they would barely bat an eye at his deciding to ask Vladimir Putin to pretty please share any dirt he might have on Hunter Biden, at least when Putin takes brief breaks from ordering war crimes against Ukraine. The wingnuts at Newsmax are fine with it, and so apparently are plenty of Republicans.

For instance, Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-North Dakota), treated the whole matter as a joke in an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd Thursday. Not only did he consider Trump's behavior perfectly fine, just Trump being Trump, he also thought Trump's remarks themselves were a funny joke, just some brilliant trolling of the gullible press who took the comments seriously, haha, what guillible dopes.
